Us­ing the tilt shift ef­fect

iCreate - - FINAL CUT PRO X -

When shoot­ing a toy or model you tend to get a nar­row band of fo­cus due to the cam­era’s prox­im­ity to the sub­ject and a wide aper­ture set­ting. A spe­cial­ist tilt shift lens can pro­duce a sim­i­lar nar­row band of fo­cus that makes full-size sub­jects look like toys (es­pe­cially if you shoot the sub­ject from an el­e­vated an­gle as you might a toy).

1 Im­port clip

Im­port our supplied Tilt­shift Source.mov clip and place it in the time­line. We shot this from a bridge to mimic the high an­gle you might shoot a train set from.

2 Mod­ify blur prop­er­ties

In the In­spec­tor, set Amount to 40 and Soft­ness to 500. Keep Width at 100 to have a wide band of fo­cus in the mid­dle. Play the clip to see your ‘toy train set’ in ac­tion.
